I had so much fun designing these cookies.
Instead of using the flooding method of cookie decorating, I made a thicker royal icing to pipe.
I love how it created more definition like buttercream but dried hard like a flooded cookie.
I made a Mickey Mouse cookie using chocolate candy melts.
AND, made a basketweave cookie that I absolutely love. It is so easy to do (with a steady hand) and turns out beautiful.
Using DOTS candy I made the pumpkin stems but you can use any type of green candy.
Watch the videos to see how easy they are to make. AND have fun!
